Clogged Drain Cleaning Services

A clogged or damaged drain or sewer isn’t just an inconvenience. It can be costly if a back up or overflow occurs. Our professionals have provided sewer and drain cleaning services for residential homeowners and property managers, as well as commercial facilities including restaurants, malls, hotels, bars, golf clubs and city and county facilities.

Our drain cleaning services prevent those annoying clogged drain problems from recurring in the future. Areas where drain stoppage can frequently occur are in the fixture trap, in the main drain, in the sharp bends and direction changes of the sub pipelines, and even in the sewer line. It takes a qualified technician to find the source of the problem and clean it so it doesn’t keep clogging. Regardless of where the clog is or how what is causing the blockage, even if the problem goes all the way to the sewer line, they will find it and unclog the drain in the shortest time possible.

There are several signs of a drain that has become clogged. One of the easiest signs to spot is a drain that will not empty water at all. Other signs of a clogged drain are slow draining water, a toilet that doesn’t flush or is slow to flush, water back up in a tub or shower, a smell coming from the drain and visible debris in the drain.
While a clogged drain may seem to be just an inconvenience, there are some dangers associated with a clog. Standing water can pose a drowning hazard for young children. A toilet that does not flush will fester and present fouls smells and bacteria into the air. Debris in a drain is also a breeding ground for fruit flies and other small insects. Standing water also allows mosquitoes and other insect to breed.
While there are products on the market for a clogged drain, they can be dangerous both to the inhabitants of your home and your pipes. The caustic chemicals that make up commercial drain cleaners can eat away at some pipe materials creating a bigger problem. Most commercial drain cleaners will also not clear clogs in toilet drains. Another common problem often happens when homeowners plunge their toilets.  They plunge so hard it makes a leak in the wax seal between the toilet and the bathroom floor. This allows a little flushed toilet waste to leak under the toilet to stagnate and/or leak onto the floor.  A Miranda professional will avoid this problem, and fix it if his inspection finds toilet waste leaking onto your bathroom floor he can give you a quote to repair it quickly on the spot.

Cable (Snake) Drain Cleaning Services

Drain cleaning services are not just a matter of manpower. You need the right equipment to unclog a drain without causing damage and to fully remove the clog – watch our video example.  At Miranda Plumbing Services, we have every drain cleaning machine from small hand snakes to drain machines capable of cleaning big sewer mains. One of our most powerful and flexible machines, however, is the cable drain cleaning machine (also know as a “Drain Snake”). The cable drain cleaning machines clean the drain or sewer by rotating a flexible cable made of piano wire through the pipe. Attachments on the end of the cable aid in the cleaning process by scraping, boring, cutting, and retrieving the pipe blockage. Each type of pipe blockage requires the proper size cable and cutting head. Not just anyone can use these machines to their full drain cleaning potential. It takes experienced, qualified technicians, and Miranda Plumbing Services has them.
